Joyce DiDonato, mezzo-soprano
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato entrances audiences across the globe with “a warmth in [her] voice that can intensify into fire” (The New Yorker). With her latest and most personal album, In War and Peace, DiDonato offers powerful interpretations of Baroque arias. Now, making her Santa Barbara recital debut, she will perform her exquisite rendition of Handel’s “Lascia ch’io pianga” along with her Rossini bel canto and other gems.
“The perfect 21st-century diva – an effortless combination of glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace and remarkable talent.” The New York Times
“A great, brave and inspiring artist… Those who know her repertoire are in awe of her gifts, and those who know nothing of it are instantly engaged. Joyce sings and the world is suddenly brighter.” Gramophone
